I decided to test out the iTunes Movie rentals and compare it to Amazon's Unbox and I have to say, I like it. That's not saying much because Unbox is pretty....frustrating, to say the least. Both still use proprietary software but since iTunes has a huge install base, most people won't find it to be… Continue reading iTunes Movie Rentals
I downloaded and installed Firefox 3 Beta 3 and it's a pretty solid beta so far. No crashes or anything and it's bloody fast. Probably as fast if not faster than Safari. I'm impressed. Very impressed. I only wished some of my add-ons would work with it. The interface is revamped for OS X and… Continue reading Firefox Beta 3

This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was pretty much a dud with nothing really revolutionary being announced (with the exception of Project Kuro from Pioneer.) To spice things up, a blogger from Gizmodo decided to take along his TV-B-Gone and shut down walls and walls of televisions that were being exhibited at the show. What's… Continue reading Gizmodo CES Prank = BANNED
As this is the holiday season, I'm sure many people are getting HDTV but not me and there are a few reasons why I and others might not be jumping in the high definition bandwagon. The most obvious reason is that the high price of joining the high definition club is still extremely restrictive. Sure,… Continue reading The State of High Definition
Apple released a software update for their Macbook and Macbook Pros because customers have been experiencing problems with the sensitivity of the keyboards. I myself have experienced this annoyance. The first time I tried typing on my Macbook, I complained about how "squishy" and unresponsive the keyboard felt but I'm happy to report that the… Continue reading Mabook/Macbook Pro Keyboard Updates
